  6. 6. Summer internship report-2011 POTENTIAL OF AGRO BASED INDUSTRIES EMPLOYMENT AND SELF EMPLOYMENT FOR YOUTHExecutive SummaryProject titled “feasibility study on potential of Agro Industries & Rural Service basedEmployment and Self Employment” was conducted in Gulbarga districts of Karnataka. Mainobjective of this survey is to determine potential of skill development vocational center in andaround the identified areas of implementing the Skill development program. This surveyprovides vital, direct and meaningful input that allows the professional to consider futuredecision making actions with greater security and accuracy.The project involved a face to face interaction with drop-out student, college student, major AgriIndustries, farmers in the area and the other Govt. institutes such as block development office,district education office, Agriculture departments, village talukas and panchayats.Both primary and secondary data collection has been collected to gather information. Differentset of questionnaire was developed for students, farmers and Agri Industries to know theirdemand and requirements.The analysis was drawn that large no. of youth is unemployed in surveyed areas and industriesalso requires skilled employees with different kind of skills ranging from technical skill, jobrelated skills, managerial skills, communication skills etc. as per requirement of the industries.Main thing is that majority of youth does not have technical education so they are forced to do alabour job in industries or as Agriculture labour with very less wages, some of the youth who arewell educated also doing labour works as they don’t have any technical qualification.So there is needed to start skill development programme in identified areas by considering therequirements of the industry i.e. what type of trained people they want and also take care of thepotential of the rural youth. NATIONAL INSTITUTE OF AGRICULTURAL MARKETING, JAIPUR 6
  7. 7. Summer internship report-2011IntroductionUnemployment is a major problem of India and presently more than 4.5 crores of youth areunemployed in this country. Young people are a major human resource for development, keyagents for social change and driving force for economic development and technologicalinnovation. But harnessing these resources is a major challenge. The youth challenge isconsidered as the most critical of the 21st century’s economic development challenge. Youth,defined by the United Nations as persons between the ages of 15 and 24, is a transitional periodfrom childhood to adulthood, According to the Census of India 2001, nearly 40 per cent of thepopulation was in the age group of 13 to 35 years. The number of youth aged 15 to 24 years was195.07 million, which accounted for 19.0 per cent of the whole population. India contributesabout 33 per cent of youth population in the developing Asian countries (ADB, 2008) Theunemployment was the highest in the age group of 20-24 years and at least 83% of theunemployed belong to the age group of 15-29 years in each social group both in rural and urbanareas.The critical aspects of the challenge are mostly related to labor market entry where young peopleencounter difficulties in finding and maintaining a decent job. The growing large number ofunemployed youth is one of the most daunting problems faced by developed and developingcountries alike (ILO, 2004, 2005b). Failure to integrate young people into the labor market hasbroader consequences for the future prosperity and development of countries.Though the share of agriculture in the aggregate economy has declined rapidly during theplanned development of the country; it assumes a pivotal role in the rural economy. The NSSsurveys on employment show a decline in the share of agriculture and an increase in the share ofnon-agricultural sector in aggregate employment. Such a structural shift though expected in adeveloping economy, has been slower in the Indian economy. This process is even slower in therural economy. Nevertheless in rural India the growth rate of employment in the non-agriculturalsector has been far short of the increase in the rural workforce. As a consequence, the incidenceof rural unemployment on the basis of current daily status (CDS) is as high as seven percent inthe year 1999-00. There is no evidence to suggest improvement in the quality of ruralemployment, which is generally associated with the structural changes of employment. In this NATIONAL INSTITUTE OF AGRICULTURAL MARKETING, JAIPUR 7
  8. 8. Summer internship report-2011context employment in agriculture remains important. Agriculture is one of thestrongholds of the Indian economy and accounted for 14.2 per cent of the countrys grossdomestic product (GDP) in 2010-11, according to the Central Statistical Organization’s (CSO)estimates. Furthermore, the sector provided employment to 55 per cent of the work force whichaccount for 467 million labour forces.Background of the studyIndigram skill and knowledge initiative pvt.ltd is an education and skill development companyworking in agri-rural areas providing employability training in vocational skills including selfemployment opportunities by training, placement and mentoring of rural youths. Knowledge andskills of the national workforce are the key determinant for future economic growth. A massiveinvestment by the various government sectors in rural areas is expected to create hugeinfrastructure and job opportunities for millions of rural youth. Indigram will act as an enablerthat will equip these youth with just the right kind of skills and be a part of this Endeavour.Vision of Indigram is to be the largest skills and employability training provider for rural youthin India. In the next ten years vision will be to provide appropriate training to over 2 million ruralyouth and create gainful employment or self employment opportunities and sustainablelivelihood to equal number of families.This report is framed around central questions.  How can the job skills and placement opportunities for unemployed vulnerable youth be increased in India, with particular attention to the Gulbarga, Karnataka?  What are the entry points for youth in the local industries, and how do these points relate to economic growth, employment generation, livelihood and labor policies in the Gulbarga district of Karnataka?  What are the formal and non-formal education and training opportunities that can help in preparing school dropout unemployed youth for working and engagement in civil society?  What kinds of strategies and programs Indigram can consider to strengthen efforts to meet the education, training, and employment of unemployed out-of-school youth? NATIONAL INSTITUTE OF AGRICULTURAL MARKETING, JAIPUR 8
  9. 9. Summer internship report-2011Need for the studyThe main goal of the report is to mesh current knowledge and information of India workforcedevelopment into a coherent strategy that examines the three main components of theassessment: the youth, the economic environment that shapes workforce demand, and theinstitutional supply of workforce training. Because 175 million students enroll in class I everyyear, Out of which only 20 million finish class XII; 55%student (96 Million) drop out up to classVIII & 70% (122 Million) by class X. 152 million has no access to obtain Vocational Training.What happens to those who do not finish school? Enter the employment / labor market and learnwhile working. Take what are available menial jobs which normally fail to bring them abovepoverty line or Remain unemployed.OBJECTIVES OF THE STUDY  Identification of catchment areas for students in the target locations within an age group of 18 ~ 30 yrs.  Sensitizing rural youths and their families on the need for skills training in various sectors and potential analysis on various agri and rural services based training for income generation.  Identifying industries that require skilled employees for entry level jobs  Understanding existing skill gaps for industries and their entry level requirements.  Market potential of vocational training in the target locations  Assessment report focuses on the challenges and opportunities for employment for out- of-school Youth in Gulbarga. NATIONAL INSTITUTE OF AGRICULTURAL MARKETING, JAIPUR 9
  10. 10. Summer internship report-2011Why Gulbarga?The choice of the Gulbarga reflects initial investigations that showed clear potential foreconomic growth in the geographical area. Further, Indigram already had a presence in theseregions, thus creating possibilities of synergy between current Indigram programming ineducation and economic growth. Gulbarga has five most backward taluka out of eight talukas inwhich large number of unemployed youth is present. Gulbarga has relatively more per capitaland holding but agriculture is only rain fed which does not give employment to farmersthroughout the year. Hence there is a need of vocational training which will provide them analternate source of income.GULBARGA DISTRICT PROFILEThe district is one among the 30 districts of Karnataka State. It is located in the Northern part ofthe state and lies between North latitude 170 10 and 170 45 and between east longitude 760 10 and770 45.It is bounded on the west by Bijapur district of Karnataka and Solapur district ofMaharastra on the north by Bidar district of Karnataka and Zaheerabad district of AndhraPradesh and on the sotuh by Yadgir, a newly formed district of Karnataka. The districtconstitutes 7 revenue blocks and 8 educational blocks, they are Afzalpur. Aland, Chincholi,Chittapur, Gulbarga (North), Gulbarga (South), Jewargi and Sedam.Socio-Economic Characteristics of GulbargaIn recent years a High Power Committee was constituted by the govt. of Karnataka to look intothe problem of regional imbalances in the state. The committee (Popularly known asNanjundappa Committee) submitted its report in 2002. The committee, on the basis of varioussocio-economic indicators assessed the development of 175 taluks in the state. The committeehas identified the committee has identified six taluks among the seven taluks in the Gulbargadistrict as the most backward taluks.

Jewargi, Aland andAfzalpur talukas are economically backward hence farmer and student of these talukas should betargeted.INDUSTRIAL AND EMPLOYMENT PROFILEGulbarga has 3 industrial areas and 3industrial estates. Gulbarga has an Industrial base for AgroBased, Cements, and Chemicals industry etc. The recent investments in Cement by ACC,Rajashree and India Cements make the District as an emerging destination for Cement industries.The proposed Suvarna Karnataka Corridor envisages the creation of an Information Technologyzone, Bio Technology zone and a cement zone. There are 7 Large and Medium industries in thedistrict with an investment of Rs 1,683.95 Crore There are 129 factories in the district. There is aproposal for a Textile Park in the district of Gulbarga. Gulbarga is the house of more than 300pulse mill which provide employment to more than 3000 people. The district economy is mainlyan agricultural economy as agriculture contributes 31.7% of district income and providesemployment to 67% of the population.Above mentioned data and interaction with student, farmers and industries gives us idea thatpotential of skill development courses in Gulbarga is very high and Indigram can move ahead forfurther expansion program.

If they will be trained for using these landthen they will generate extra income from the uncultivable land, for that farmer needs training NATIONAL INSTITUTE OF AGRICULTURAL MARKETING, JAIPUR 12
  13. 13. Summer internship report-2011which Indigram can provide by this means farmer and Indigram both will bebenefitted.

We find that Majority of students (27.36%) are interested in takingagricultural based vocational training, main reason behind this is average land holding in NATIONAL INSTITUTE OF AGRICULTURAL MARKETING, JAIPUR 17
  18. 18. Summer internship report-2011Gulbarga is high and this sector has high potential of self employment. There isgreat opportunity for rural drop-out student to start their own business as well as generateemployment for other unemployed youth in their village. It was good to notice that everyindividual are interested for skill development course some for permanent job other for par timejob. Second interested sector is sales and service as expected because of very high demand ofthese skilled personal. Poultry was one of the high demanded courses in Afzalpur talukas ofGulbarga because of more Muslim population.Model for poultry farming: 2.

  19. 19. Summer internship report-2011 Inference – Majority of students wants job in their own district, main reason behind this is socio economic condition of student’s family. Student from economically backward number is more in Gulbarga. Student wants to take a part time job by which they can earn money without leaving school and college and also support their family financially. Accountable number of students has shown interest in doing job in their own state. These are the drop out students who left their studies and presently searching job, they are ready to work in any part of Karnataka even any part of India. 3.

Improved communication and understanding by the firms andeducation and training institutions is a first step in changing traditional practices of training,recruitment, hiring, and expectations. This communication leads to a “marriage” among theprivate sector, the training institutions, and youth, and allows for the distinct actors to contributeto the process.Promote core employability skills and competencies. India is just now developing a system ofworkforce skills and competencies that can be used by industry and education institutions. Thissystem creates a set of standards that is an alternative to the formal education credential. Themain priority is to develop simple and straightforward frameworks of skills and competenciesthat enable private sector, training providers, and youth to be partners in the workforcedevelopment process.Support institutional transformation of technical education. Accompanying this process isthe reform and transformation of education and training institutions to be more oriented to theworkplace. This institutional change process happens at different speeds in the public and privatesectors. Throughout the NGO community, many new and small projects are currently developing NATIONAL INSTITUTE OF AGRICULTURAL MARKETING, JAIPUR 24
  25. 25. Summer internship report-2011this workplace orientation. We recommend that Indigram assist in this institutionalstrengthening, particularly with new institutions committed to youth workforce development.Encourage active labor market programs for all skill levels of youth, but with particularattention to rural and vulnerable youth. The main challenge of all employment trainingprograms is to establish working linkages between demanders and suppliers of training. India isnow at a crossroads for this change of attitude. We recommend that programs place priority onactive linkages among the private sector, programs and youth.Limitations for study  Time was major limiting factor for this project because of random selection of students and such a many school and colleges has to cover.  Direct interview method adopted for students and industries, so bias may appear due to reasons like human exaggerating nature, social prestige, prejudices, suspicions etc.  With the consideration of all constraints and limitations, adequate efforts have taken to minimize biasness and make these efforts more meaningful.Directions for further ResearchBibliography 1.
